Welcome to the Co.Co Residence Emma Kate Co!

One thing that we value at Co.Co is our relationships and being surrounded by like minded people.

Like many of us in this crazy industry, we work hard everyday and we need to make sure we have fun along the way...

A lot of you may have heard of the brand Emma Kate Co. who we first stumbled on three and a half years ago, and we knew immediately that she had to be part of our Co.Co collection!

Emma Kate Co. is a beautiful travel-inspired stationary and lifestyle brand, here in Melbourne. The range is simply soul stirring through every brush stroke and detail.

Driving this brand is one of the most sweetest hardworking boss lady making all this magic happen, and that is Emma Kate - Founder + Chief Wild Heart. We haven't met anyone more passionate that lives and breathes what she writes, pouring all heart into everything she does and everyone she meets. 

Emma Kate is a constant jet setter travelling around the world, and through her captures we get to immerse ourselves in her adventures. We were lucky enough to join her in a recent trip to Paris and Florence, and what a liberating adventure that was! (more on this later).

Seeing our customer's emotional connection to her brand in store as they read the words on her beautiful prints or the perfect card, makes us happy as we can see how Emma Kate Co. makes them feel.

Working with Emma Kate Co. through the years has been a delight. We have watched the brand continually evolve and flourish, and it was only natural that our friendship would also grow along the way.

Co.Co has always had the luxury of space behind the walls (although at times we felt we don't have enough!). We had looked at creative ways of filling 'this space' but it was never quite right. 

It's funny how things align...Emma Kate Co. was looking for some change and through many occasions over what we enjoy most - cheese and wine, we thought how perfect and fun it would be if Emma Kate Co. were to be in residence with us! 

So in true Co.Co spirit, what better way to celebrate than to throw an intimate party!

Here's a snippet video from our celebration a few weeks ago beautifully captured by the talented Madeleine Gill.*** 

Let's get a little more up close and personal with Emma Kate...

Coffee or Tea?
Tea first thing in the morning (always) - with a coffee soon after that.
I also fancy champagne!

Colours that I’m loving are….
Deep botanical green, peachy blush and rose gold (especially all together)

3 words to describe my personality….
Grateful. I never take anything for granted.
Authentic. I’m very unapologetically ‘me’. Heart on sleeve, imperfectly raw, messy and real, trying to become the best version of me I can be.
Seeker. Travel obsessed, in love with the world, and perpetually dreaming of new cities places to lose and find myself in.

Happiness is…..
a pink-skied sunrise.
The combination of wine cheese, dear friends to laugh with, and a cobbled street to wander down.
Falling in (and living every day in) love.
Feeling enabled to live a life of complete, unbridled freedom - to live life on my own terms.

If I could get on a plane and fly anywhere in the world I would go to…..
Paris! With you. Oh wait, we are here right now...

Otherwise, I’d go back to Turkey. It’s such an exquisite country of colour, texture, kindness and contrast - a place where beauty and ruin coexist. Turkey is a total assault on the senses. I travelled there solo a very big time of transition in my life, and I remember Turkey with such gratitude and importance. I think there are more lessons waiting for me, when I next return.

My favourite place to shop is….
Co.Co, of course.
And Aesop.
And Zimmermann (but with my eyes, not my wallet)

Back to our party, here's some happy snaps.

Get to know MUSTARD

Get to know MUSTARD

We love uncovering new gems for our store that compliment our range, and we are super excited to introduce you to MUSTARD, who have recently launched their game changing range of lockers in Australia .

MUSTARD was created by twos sisters Becca and Jess who have always dreamed of starting a business together. They didn’t let the fact that Becca lives in Australia and Jess lives in London stop them! Their range is a perfect balance of form and function, designed to add personality to your home, kids room or work space.

*** 

We thought you'd like to get to know Becca a little closer....

Coffee or Tea?
Tea. I’m an English girl so that’s a given!

Colours that I’m loving are….
I’ve always loved an earthy palette, I’m naturally drawn to olive green and mustard (of course) but have totally been loving the trend for millennial pink that adds softness and for me, lots of white keeps it versatile.

3 words to describe my personality….
Brave, Happy and hopefully kind… on a good day! :)

Happiness is…..
...being out of my comfort zone. Life has taught me that ‘happiness’ doesn’t always make you feel ‘happy’ but it’s the bigger picture that matters most. Of course my family is my daily dose of love and hugs which makes the bigger picture all worth while.

If I could get on a plane and fly anywhere in the world I would go to…..
India. I first went alone as a 19 year old backpacker, then as a nanny, then with my son when he was two and I long to return. It’s intense, beautiful, colourful, filthy, surprising and magical all at once.

My favourite place to shop is….
My home is a real mix of vintage, new and handmade so often I find my favourite things in vintage stores or markets but I love an online shopping spree in my pjs too!

***

The MUSTARD range comes in six colours and by now you would have seen beautiful images of these products floating around. 

We were also lucky enough to have Becca and Jess provide us with two samples, the Shorty in Blush and the Skinny in White at co.co for you to view in person.
